Don’t forget to get NordVPN’s special deal
If you’re heading to China for the World Cup, don’t forget that China blocks all the most popular websites and social media, so no Facebook for you. Unless you grab a VPN that is.
With a VPN service you can access the content you’re used to like Google, Instagram and so on. Even if you’re not there physically, you’ll probably want to stream FIBA World CUP 2019 matches.
A VPN helps to do so securely, not to mention you’d be able to do so from any country, with no geographical restrictions to streaming content.
